THE SEAGULL BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: October 2, 2008
Synopsis: Kristin Scott Thomas reprises her Olivier Award-winning role of Arkadina in the critically acclaimed Royal Court Theatre production of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull. The production, featuring a new version by Christopher Hampton, is directed by Ian Rickson. The play concerns the romantic entanglements and regrets of a group of actors, writers and artists gathered on a Russian estate. One of the theatre's great plays about writing, The Seagull conveys the struggle for new forms and the frustrations and fulfillment of putting words on a page.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"Silence is never empty in Ian Rickson’s magnificent production of “The Seagull,” which opened Thursday night at the Walter Kerr Theater. When a hush descends on Chekhov’s restless country estate dwellers — as it often does, abrupt and unbidden — the air remains alive with crosscurrents of thought, clashing chords of longing and the steady thrum of time passing. Brought to life by a superlative ensemble led by Kristin Scott Thomas, the thwarted souls of “The Seagull” are as self-revealing in frozen speechlessness as they are in frantic flights of conversation."
"The symbolic bird killed by brooding writer Konstantin in "The Seagull" returns to Ian Rickson's production in the shattering final scene, stuffed and mounted in a glass display case. But the director, adaptor Christopher Hampton and their fine ensemble have achieved a complete reversal of the taxidermist's approach, injecting startling vitality, immediacy and infinite nuance into Chekhov's 1895 play."
